(Missourinet) – The frigid cold temperatures sickened a few attendees at the NFL Wild Card game pitting the Kansas City Chiefs against the Miami Dolphins. The Kansas City Fire Department received 69 calls for service at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on Saturday, says KMBC-TV. That includes calls from both inside the stadium and in the parking lot. Half of the nearly 69 calls were hypothermia-related.

KCFD says that 15 people were transported to area hospitals. Of those, seven were for hypothermia, three were for frostbite.

My previous jobs have taught me the importance of news. My last job I had the opportunity to run a news department in Alaska. There, I learned that people didn’t watch the television or read the newspaper, they only had access to the radio, in fact they depended on it for their daily living. Because news is so important when people still depend on broadcast radio, I learned the importance of reporting with accuracy, honesty and doing so without setting some sort of agenda.
